A nation of laws, not men

Posted · Add Comment

One of the items that guarantees our freedom is that we are a nation of laws, not men. In other words, the law is blind to your station in life. The law cares not whether you are wealthy and connected, or destitute and despised—justice is the same no matter what. At least, that’s the theory. […]

Donald Trump’s First 100 Days

Posted · Add Comment

Yesterday I went on the Dave Congalton show on 920 KVEC to discuss Donald Trump’s First 100 Days in office. As is the usual, I always enjoy talking with Dave and often the callers give me good reason to laugh—sometimes in agreement and sometimes…well, you know. If you’re interested, you can listen to the show […]

Amateur theologians

Posted · Add Comment

The debate over the which Syrian refugees (if any) and how many of them to bring to the United States has brought out a cadre of amateur theologians—many of whom darken the doorway of a house of worship only for weddings and funerals—quick to tell us exactly WWJD when it comes to public policy. The […]

The Syrian Refugees

Posted · 1 Comment

In the wake of last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris that left more than 100 dead, President Obama has decided that it is a good time to reemphasize his plan to bring 200,000 Syrian refugees to America over the next two years. This despite the fact that at least one of the Paris terrorists entered […]

Clinton’s Email Security

Posted · Add Comment

After months of requests, former Secretary of State, and current Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton finally turned over her infamous personal email server to the FBI.

Chuck Schumer is right on the Iran Deal

Posted · Add Comment

As a general rule, it’s hard to go wrong taking the opposite position of New York Sen. Chuck Schumer on just about any subject of public import. Gun-control, healthcare, government spending, whatever, find out which side Schumer is on and choose the other. Which brings us to eight words I never thought I’d say or […]

Obama’s bad deal

Posted · Add Comment

President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and just about every other administration official repeatedly said over the course of the P5+1 negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program that “no deal is better than a bad deal.” That was a lie. Today, President Obama proudly announced that he’d made a deal with Iran that […]

In this age of social media, the Obama Administration has made a much of their public relations efforts against various evils around the world. First Lady Michelle Obama famously held up a piece of paper with the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag after the Islamic terrorists of Boko Haram kidnapped more than 200 girls for use as sex […]

'Smart' people are dumb

Posted · Add Comment

I can’t begin to describe the level of stupid in this: Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, hoped that a team of UN investigators — many of whom, presumably, have a longstanding relationship with Iranian leaders — could write a report that would convince Iran to abandon its ally at the behest […]
